Probably one of the best cookbooks I've bought in the past few years. I love cooking, and I'm not afraid of complex recipes, but during the week you just want something you can throw in the oven. My partner and I have already made three dinners from this book and every single one of them has been tasty, quick to make and delicious. The book does what it says on the front cover: every recipe involves nothing more than cutting something up and putting it in the oven. This is perfect for busy ...more

It feels weird to say "I read a cookbook" but I legit read this cover to cover and now I plan on buying it. I made some delicious meals, plus it has guides for roasting meats, veggies, and grains. Great for making meals for the week or something fancy to impress folks that isn't too complicated. also- WHO DOESN'T LOVE PHOTOS OF FOOD??? 5 stars.

A cookbook that just works. The recipes are tasty and dead easy to create. I don't think we've had a duff dish. In fact, I've been positively evangelical about this to friends - one of the best cookbooks I've used in recent years.
A cookbook for people who don't cook, can't cook or won't cook, as well as those that do (perfect for those moments when you're confronted with the prospect of preparing dinner and your mind goes blank). Nothing is overly ambitious, requires minimal effort, and even the most basic kitchen would have all the kit needed. I actually think a copy of this book, a tray, chopping board and a couple of decent knives is the best thing you could send any young adult out into the world with.

I love this book. I've had it for three days, cooked three completely different meals (chicken, pork and salmon) and all have been easy and delicious. Can't wait to try some more of the recipes.

Update - I am now on my second copy of this book as my first one has been *borrowed* by my 67 year old dad who thinks it is the best thing ever...he's not been cooking that long and loves that the recipes are even doable for him.

Two work colleagues have also bought copies after borrowing mine. It's a

Awesome cookery book - this is my kind of meal preparation, everything in one tin at one temperature, pop it all in the oven then nip off to do a sudoku while it all cooks.

Though none of the recipes stood out to me, this would be a great jumping off point for someone to try sheet pan meals and then come up with their own recipes.

This is a brilliant cookbook which features easy to follow, fuss free recipes that are not prescriptive; if you don’t have one ingredient to hand you can check the options and substitute for something you have without need to to alter the rest of the elements.
There is a good variety of meals to appeal to most palates, I’m really fussy but with the way this boom is presented I can just swap in and out the things I don’t like. It’s a really good guide for showing you what flavours go together.

Look, these recipes look delicious. I'm probably not going to make of them because my family and I hate most ingredients in general, but they look tasty as all hell.

A brilliant concept - I've been looking for a cookbook based on 'chop ingredients up, put into tray and leave in oven' for ages. (Any recommendations for similarly themed cookbooks would be appreciated!). Delicious, easy, healthy meals.

Testing this book as a gift for my newbie-cook partner and have been reaping the benefits! The recipes are all simple and good, very un-intimidating for a newcomer to the kitchen. I think it will go over well!

The best, the absolute best thing about this book is the layout. I read a LOT of cookbooks and have definite opinions on the stupid things publishers do that make the books themselves hard to use even if the recipes are good.

This has a nice, flat-bound, hardback spine that means the pages

Great read - however, it’s a shame that the author has decided not to include the nutritional information beside each recipe as a lot of other cookbooks on the market do. I feel this is a very handy addition so am always disappointed when this is missing.

Gives me hope that even I could cook something. Fingers crossed. I might give something a go and see if it works.

I love the concept of this book, which offers lots of recipes but also encourages mixing & matching. Everything looks so yummy, too, and the photography is great.
